President Donald Trump came to Washington with a clear mandate to drain the swamp. As his 2018 budget has revealed, it’s clear he’s keeping his promise to do just that.
The Trump budget proposal for the fiscal year 2018-2019 includes substantial cuts. Such cuts will be a welcome benefit to the American people as it demonstrates the government is no longer picking winners and instead is creating a level playing field in which individual enterprise can prosper.
According to the Washington Post, some departments were sweating over the potential for cuts that are now a reality. “The department’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), which funds research on advanced vehicles as well as other aspects of clean energy, would face a roughly 70 percent cut in 2018, carving about $ 1.45 billion from its $2.09 billion 2017 budget.” The Post story additionally says other programs will take over 50 percent budget cuts, much to big-government liberals’ and big-government conservatives’ chagrin.
Substantial cuts to the Department of Energy, especially in regards with so-called clean energy, are exactly what every conservative would want to see. It is precisely the limited government, anti-big business, anti-corruption that is essential to American conservatism. Trump understands this well, and he understands that the everyday American workers benefit when the government no longer impedes his ability to do his work without interference or regulatory burden.”
